Otsego High School is a rapidly changing environment for students to learn. Technology is always updating, and Otsego is keeping up with the pace. Every student has their own personal chromebook, and all the students have access to the Media Center. Which houses anything you could need for a project, including a 3D printer!

The building itself is an amazing. The campus is pretty and the facilities are solid. However, their is too much emphasis on sports and not enough on the arts. I was in OHS for 2 years and I was apart of the dive and track teams. Unfortunately, like most high schools around here, all anyone cares about is Football, Basketball, and Baseball and not any of the other sports. The food is just normal cafeteria food, with little to no salad options. On a good note, there are plenty of clubs to join and the LBGTQ+ is very active. Its in walking distance from the library too. The school dances are terrible and the diversity is very low. The best thing going for the school is the art program and the marching band. Other than that, this school is ok. My 2 years there were average at best.
Otsego is a great place to go to school because of the community. We are all there for each other and when someone needs help we jump to the task. I learned a lot at Otsego High School and I think going there has really gotten me ready for my college experience. Thank you Otsego!
